Head for the hills! Or at least stay inside when the lightning gets here in a couple of hours. The timing of the incoming weather is looking a bit dodgy, so no intramural today. We don’t mess around when lightning is on the menu.
The 2018 Intramural season kicks off next week! Our intramural team, lead by Coach Laura, meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is open to girls and boys living in Falmouth in grades 2-8. Players will be divided up by grade, with the 2nd-4th graders using a cool new special smaller disc in their games, the 5th and 6th graders matching up, and the 7th and 8th graders playing together. Players in the 2nd-4th grades will play from 6-7:30pm, while players in the 5th-8th grades will play from 6-8pm.
The cost to register for the intramural team is $65, though as always, no player will ever be turned away for financial reasons. If the cost of playing is at all an issue, we just ask that families pay whatever is affordable. The cost of participating should NEVER factor into a player’s decision to play ultimate.
Maine’s own Charles Cleary (AKA Chuck), who will be producing a video for Falmouth Rogue later this season, just released a beautifully shot and produced highlights video from the 2017 USAU Women’s Club Finals between Boston’s Brute Squad and San Francisco’s Fury. Amazing ultimate.
We watched a fully-produced game of professional ultimate during last night’s practice. Here’s the game we watch, for anyone who missed practice or for parents interested in seeing what top-level play looks like.
We’ve done some logistical juggling and are now able to keep registration open for Falmouth Rogue through the end of the month!
The good news is that our first practice is on Friday, March 30th and the deadline to register isn’t until the following day, March 31st. So players can now check out the first practice before making the final decision to commit to the full season!
The roads are a bit too slippery to meet tonight, so we’ll be pushing back to meet at noon this Saturday. Same place- Falmouth Town Library on Lunt. Apologies if that conflicts with any weekend plans. The deadline to register will be pushed back to Sunday and I’ll post notes from the meeting Saturday evening.
